"Five Stars ... the Cologne Academy is a small band ... its playing under Michael Alexander Willens is lively and stylish throughout ... what's impressive about (Brautigam's) playing is not just its sprightliness, but also its expressive character ... if you prefer your Mozart played on period instruments, you're unlikely to find better performances than these."
- BBC Music Magazine

"Brautigam's interpretations are individual without being wayward or eccentric, for he ignores the accepted norms of performance and starts from the score itself ... on the basis of this first installment I would urge anyone to invest in this new cycle. Brautigam is an absolutely instinctive Mozartian, with fleet fingerwork to match any, and with melodic playing of consummate beauty."
- International Record Review

With this 2010 release, Dutch pianist Ronald Brautigam launches a series devoted to Mozart's piano concertos performed on fortepiano. Brautigam is joined by period ensemble Die Kölner Akademie conducted by Michael Alexander Willens on a programme that includes one of Mozart’s earliest masterpieces, the Piano Concerto No. 9. This is followed by the Piano Concerto No. 12, one of the first Vienna concertos, concluding with a Rondo for piano and orchestra from the same period.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
